Find a person that you can travel the whole world with. After the end when you see how much more you love them now, marry them that instant.

Nathalie and Nikita traveled all over the world together. They lived in Russia, but had dreams of getting married on the beautiful California Coast in Big Sur on the anniversary of them getting together. Rather than the cold weather of Russia, they stood in the sunset of the California coast for their intimate elopement.  Just them, myself, and Kandace who was a rock star assisting me that day. It was my first time not only photographing a ceremony, but officiating it while I photographed.  Clearly I am a good multi-tasker.

Pretty lucky to be able to have had this experience in my life with these two. Enjoy the picture show.
